Denny Hamlin: Drops Appeal
Update: NASCAR announced that the $25,000 fine assessed to driver Hamlin on March 7 will be settled per Section 12-3 of the 2013 NASCAR rule book after being informed by Hamlin that he will not appeal the penalty, NASCAR PR reports.

Recommendation: The Joe Gibbs Racing star can put this unpleasant episode behind him. Hamlin has decided to drop his appeal for the $25,000 fine he was tagged with after making comments about the Gen-6 car after the Phoenix race. He still plans not to pay the fine, but NASCAR can withhold the sum from his next race purse. So the move is more symbolic of Hamlin's protest than anything.
